Loving and Wrestling with Israel: with Rabbi Rick Jacobs

(All day)

Location: 

477 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02215, USA
Even though many recent Israeli government policies are challenging to Reform Jews in North America, we must double down on deepening our connections to our Jewish State. How do we strongly advocate for a Jewish-Democratic state, that promotes equal rights, pluralism, and builds the infrastructure of peace while helping our people fall in love with Israel? That’s the challenge and great opportunity for our movement. Join Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism for our Feinberg Lecture.

Black/s and Jew/s. Then and Now

(All day)

Location: 

775 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215, USA
When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel walked together during the 1965 March on Selma, they forged a bond between Blacks and Jews committed to the pursuit of racial justice and equal rights for all Americans.  Today, in an age of persistent economic racism and systemic inequality, attempts to renew this bond are hampered by mutual recrimination: Jews are being asked to check their unacknowledged “white privilege;” Blacks are being asked to check their unacknowledged “anti-Semitism.” Is there room for “Jews of Color?” The panelists – civil rights icon Andrew Young,...

Allah says in the Qur’an, “Travel in the land and see the consequences of those who were before you…” 30:42 This verse encourages a reflection upon history, an awareness of what people did, and what the effects of their actions were.  History in the Quranic understanding has pedagogical content. The ruins of idolatrous peoples teach us about the tragic results of disbelief. But what can we learn from the vagaries of our own history as Muslims?
